Although we both grew up here, me on the Mary's river ranch (a Wright on mom's side) and him on his family's ranch in Lamoille and at the Gallagher Ford dealership, we never really met until college at UNR. I think we were introduced once at the Eureka County Fair when we were about 17, but it wasn't storybook. We both thought we were way too cool, him being State FFA President and me being a collegiate runner. We got over that pretty fast. We dated part of our freshman year of college and were on and off for the last 8 years. We both left, we both came back, we tried being friends, but that never worked. Two years ago he thought he'd lost me for good and I told him I wasn't coming back. This is when he pulled off what he calls his biggest sales pitch yet. He convinced me he'd settle down if I'd give him one more chance... and I did because it was always him. He's never made me regret that or question it and now we are getting married!
-Casey & Rachel, it's been incredible getting to know you over the past few months and document your love story. Thanks for making my job unbelievable easy! Your wedding day will be absolutely gorgeous!
The stone was Casey's paternal grandmother's and Rachel had it set by the jeweler that taught Rachel how to make jewelry. He created the setting from their ideas. The original band that the stone was in will still be included and kept as Rachel's wedding band!
